Tramlines 2017 is just around the corner, and with so many acts to choose from, here are a few of my acts you would be silly to miss this summer in Sheff. Buy tickets here.
Kano (8:45pm Devonshire Green)
Off the back of his recent Mercury nominated album ‘Made in The Manor’, Grime legend Kano is my pick of the headline acts on Friday.
Twin Atlantic (7pm Main Stage)
Glaswegian rock band Twin Atlantic are sure to get the main stage going on Friday night, with big hit ‘Heart and Soul’ bound to be a crowd pleaser.
Primal Scream (8:45pm Main Stage)
Scottish indie legends Primal Scream headline the main stage on Saturday, and with such big hits as ‘Rocks’ and ‘Movin on Up’ as well as material from their latest few albums, Bobby and co. will be one of the highlights of Tramlines 2017.
Estrons (4:45pm Devonshire Green)
Having caught Estrons live a few times now, I know that the Welsh indie rockers are one of the most energetic acts out there.
Spring King (6pm Devonshire Green)
Spring King are a great live act, with drummer and lead singer Tarek always impressive to see. Tracks like ‘The Summer’ and ‘Who Are You’ are sure to be festival highlights.
The Big Moon (6:15pm Devonshire Green)
Having just released their brilliant debut album ‘Love in the 4th Dimension’, The Big Moon’s stellar indie sounds are not to be missed.
Metronomy (7:45pm Main Stage)
Metronomy headline Sunday night on the main stage, and their electro-indie hits are not to be passed on; big hits like ‘The Bay’ and ‘The Look’ as well as great new tracks from ‘Summer ’08’ will make this a great closer to the festival.
Loyle Carner (4:45pm Main Stage)
Loyle Carner impressed with his Debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’, with his sharp wit and genuine character coming through in his verses. ‘NO CD’ is a banger.
Here’s a playlist of the best tracks from each of these artists:
